Skyjack telematics packageThe ELEVATE Live 2.0 telematics package from Skyjack, Guelph, Ontario, Canada, is an update from the company’s ELEVATE Live telematics system. The mobile-first solution was originally launched in 2018 to provide operators access to critical machine information including the machine’s current state of health, pre-use inspection guides, and familiarization materials through a QR code to empower both operators and rental companies. Updated navigation in ELEVATE Live 2.0 allows straightforward access to features, including live metrics as they pertain to the machines, such as battery details, engine faults and controller alarms. 

ELEVATE Live 2.0’s new user interface includes an additional two screens so that now live metrics, documentation and technical information feeds are available.  

“ELEVATE Live has always promoted equipment longevity and the latest version strengthens that even further,” said Greg Virgo, Skyjack project manager. “Easy to navigate design and enhanced interface with data puts even more crucial information into the operators’ hands to give them more resources than ever before, reducing the workload for rental companies.” 

Electrically powered machines can see a live battery percentage, extensive charge information and actions required on how to proceed based on battery percentage. A controller alarm data also presents any issues with corresponding codes and timestamps, battery voltage and total hours of battery usage. 

Engine powered machines can see issues complete with codes and timestamps, fuel amount and consumption data, total hours and battery voltage among other metrics. For telescopic and articulating booms tracking of secondary guarding features instances of overload and tilt alarm triggering can be tracked. 

Available in seven different languages, ELEVATE Live also includes model information, serial number and operational status.
